The City Tourist Information office also operates in the Sandcastle area, where you can get brochures, maps, current information about places to visit, events and services in Lappeenranta region.
The Sandcastle area will offer more extensive equipment rental next summer. The rental equipment includes basic hiking gear that gives tourists more opportunities to visit the archipelago and stay overnight in nature.
In the summer, you can take combined canoeing - floating sauna or cycling - floating sauna tours from the Sandcastle, or go on a fishing excursion. The stunning Saimaa Geopark sites are included in the new canoeing locations; you should first explore the Geopark sites at the Saimaarium Nature and Science Center, next to the Sandcastle.
You can also use a city bike and explore Lappeenranta, Europe´s greenest city!
